About the Book
Productive employment of the available labour force is the key to development of an economy. For effective and balanced utilization of the increasing labour force, the direction of the present book is to examine existing nature of employment in different sectors of the economy and to identify the sector or area where additional employment opportunity can be created. This is also in view of the fact that unless, the available labour force is effectively utilised, it may go as wasted becoming a liability to an economy by adversely affecting its growth.
Unemployment specially among the educated youths has created serious social problems, which is evident from the crimes, and the criminals in the society. The existing problem of unemployment in the country in general and the state of Manipur in particular, fascinated the author to go in depth into the problem of unemployment and to suggest feasible solution, keeping in view the socio-economic and political situation of Manipur. Thus the author attempts to study in detail the nature and the extent of unemployment and underemployment in the state, their causes etc. and offer measures for minimising the problems thereof.
